Assembly of the Boechera retrofracta Genome and Evolutionary Analysis of Apomixis Associated Genes

PMCID: 5924527
PMID: 29597328
DOI: 10.3390/genes9040185

[…] libraries and sequencing were performed following lee et al []., filtration of the pe library lib400 was performed in two stages. first, reads containing long adapter fragments were removed using cookiecutter []. then trimmomatic [] was used to filter out reads with short adapter fragments. however, according to the discovar requirements no trimming or quality filtration was performed […]


Clustergrammer, a web based heatmap visualization and analysis tool for high dimensional biological data

PMCID: 5634325
PMID: 28994825
DOI: 10.1038/sdata.2017.151

[…] visualizations within shareable jupyter notebooks. the clustergrammer-widget utilizes the core clustergrammer-js and clustergrammer-py libraries. clustergrammer-widget was built using the widget-cookiecutter template ( clustergrammer-widget can be installed using pip ( and the source […]


A unique Cretaceous–Paleogene lineage of piranha jawed pycnodont fishes

PMCID: 5533729
PMID: 28754956
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-017-06792-x

[…] might also have developed a facultative ectoparasitic foraging strategy consisting of biting fins of large animals, like in some modern fishes with a specialized cutting dentition (i.e., cookiecutter sharks and piranhas; figs  and and ; see supplementary text , part g). butterfly, eagle and devil rays (gymnuridae, myliobatidae and mobulidae, respectively), whale sharks […]


The Asian arowana (Scleropages formosus) genome provides new insights into the evolution of an early lineage of teleosts

PMCID: 4835728
PMID: 27089831
DOI: 10.1038/srep24501

[…] using “trim galore!” software ( with default parameters. we then cleaned out reads containing 23-mer illumina-specific primers using cookiecutter (, the cleaned reads from the microdissected chromosomes were mapped to the three assembled asian arowana genomes (golden, red and green) […]


Chromosomal Level Assembly of the Asian Seabass Genome Using Long Sequence Reads and Multi layered Scaffolding

PMCID: 4833346
PMID: 27082250
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pgen.1005954

[…] as well as the repeats present in repbase []., we used the jellyfish software [] for computing 23-mer frequencies and choosing a subset of 23-mers with coverage greater than 1,000. we used the cookiecutter package [] for extraction of raw reads containing subset of 23-mers with coverage greater than 1000. the selected reads were used to manually assemble tandem repeat monomer consensus […]


Anti apoptotic genes are synergistically activated in OVSAYO cells cultured under conditions of serum starvation and hypoxia

PMCID: 4583649
PMID: 26484240
DOI: 10.1016/j.gdata.2015.05.029

[…] slides were scanned using an agilent dna microarray scanner and data were processed using agilent feature extraction 7 software. feature and background regions were determined using the cookiecutter segmentation algorithm to obtain processed signal intensities. background was subtracted (spatial detrending) and then, signal intensity of total array was corrected (multiplicative […]
